On March 7 2022, the Vietnamese government approved the ratification of the draft Personal Data Protection Decree (the "PDP Decree"). 

The PDP Decree will impose rules on the processing of personal information. This new law will apply to organizations processing personal information in Vietnam and outside of Vietnam (subject to specific conditions).
